    the cheap pieces parts beater ... has been intentionally beaten up , scratched , steel wooled, wet sanded , polished a bit , assembled - at it actually works ... neck pocket is a bit loose, tight screws fix that ... feels good , setup is about 80% there , we'll see how it sounds later ... rather fun experiment .. ! trying to give the used neck and body a worn in look/feel ... frets leveled , fretboard edges rounded , finish ground down to a satin feel ... body gently mangled and brought back , like i would most used mutts i might find ... actually feels pretty good thus far ... time to go work on that setup a bit more ...
    parts bought here in the Classifieds for a couple hundred bucks ...

    Looks the part(s), that's for sure ;) Sorry couldn't help myself there :) I like the lightly worn look, the color's right, too. What are the pups?

    Plus the satisfaction of doing it yourself. Nice.
